Nice place, went for breakfast here. The staff are quite quiet but the lady was lovely and chatty. In regards to the food it was quite good value for money, but the eggs were both hard on our breakfasts. Portions are big which is great but meant we had to leave some. The inside decor needs a bit of work... More

A small and lovely place with a very friendly staff. We came for dinner, but weren't so hungry, so we asked if we could just get an omelet, even though it was only on the breakfast menu. No problems at all, so we had a nice meal.

We visited this lovely, quirky restaurant whilst on holiday in Devon. It really is a little gem. The lady who served us was so friendly & helpful & the food was absolutely delicious! We had nachos for starters & both had steak with a choice of sides for our mains. The cheesy fries are amazing! Make sure you go on... More
